Firebrand Training Nordic has been named Learning Partner of the Year by Microsoft Denmark for the third year running. We are now the first Partner ever to have received the award 3 times. Criteria for the award include customer satisfaction, growth and skills development. Frank Højgaard, Managing Director at Firebrand Training, says.
“It is a fantastic achievement to receive this award and recognition from Microsoft not just once but, as now, two years in a row, not least considering the fact that we only started our Nordic activities three years ago! This shows that Firebrand Training’s concept of accelerated training and focused learning really works in the Nordic countries as well. We can offer our customers and partners a possibility that no one else can, which saves them both time and money and provides them with the conditions needed for efficient, focused learning with guaranteed certification. The repeated award, together with our continued strong growth, confirms the fact that our customers’ and partners’ approval of this alternative just continues to grow.”
Erik Kaae, SMSP Director from Microsoft explains:
"Firebrand Training is growing rapidly and focuses on Microsoft as a strategic collaborating partner. The professional, flexible reception has contributed to the good results both for customers, partners and Microsoft."
